Macro and micro techniques for the disposal and amendment of bauxite residues

Poly-mineral cross-linking structure formation in alkaline bauxite residues

My study focuses on poly-mineral structure formation. In this study, the effects of chemical composition of bauxite residues on the microstructure and mechanical properties are investigated. The effects are attributed to the difference in geo-polymerization reaction. The mechanical properties are studied by unconfined compression strength (UCS) tests, while the composition and microstructure are examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Biography

I did my undergraduate degree majoring in Mining Engineering in China. After that I came to Australia to study Mphil in the field of mining-related environmental improvement.
